This is only a question about whether or not a network is even possible to obtain with the following scenario:

5 XP Computer Systems with Wireless Nics
Wireless Access Point Connected to Broadband Internet Connection
All five computers currently using the Internet succssfully through the use of the access point.

Is it possible to share a folder (peer to peer) on one of these computers and printer by just using the access point or will a switch be necessary to connect all the computers together?
